person signed up. jay carney had an answer though. listen to his explanation for these numbers. watch. >> what you have learned from selected cherry picked leaks from republican committee is that there are notes out there from a contractor that make estimates about figures related to enrollees in the early days of this process. the web site wasn't functioning very well on october 1st or october 2nd. in fact, it hasn't been functioning well in the first month since the launch. if the implication from this disclosure is that the web site wasn't working effectively on october 1st. i think that is a dog bites man story. we know that. and when we have fully compiled data about enrollment in the middle of this month for october. we're going to release it. >> how long does it take to get data from a web site. can i look up any web site. >> it has to work, first. >> you can find out who is on the site instantly. they claim they don't have these numbers. they are mad that the numbers that they don't have leaked. >> sometimes i feel sorry for jay carney sometimes i just look you are in a no-win
. if it doesn't it's junk and will be trashed. >> jay carney said if you like your plan, but it is a crummy plan you can't keep your plan. that's what the president wanted -- everyone is making excuses. >> this was a lie barack obama and the democrats sold to the american people because they knew if they sold everyone the idea that they would lose their health insurance, it would be replaced by a plan that was double or triple it never would have passed. they lied because they knew if they told the truth it never would have happened. >> that's key. kirsten. >> the reason why we were sold this is for a lot of people in the obama administration and the democrats they believe the ends justifies the means. their means are good. they have good intentions and yes, we need a better health care system. you know me. i'm a conservative. we need insurance reform coupled with tort reform. we need major change and people are afraid. >> we have the free market. >> we have to sell this hard. >> senator, you have lived the life. >> let me tell you uh -- >> i have lived it. i have abused it as well. >> i don't k
that the president never considered releasing him. the question was placed the jay carney yesterday. here is his response. [video clip] replacing hillary clinton for joe biden. >> it is important to know that campaigns and posters test a lot of things. what i can tell you without a doubt is that the president never considered that and, had anyone brought that idea to him, he would have left it out of the room. that former chief of staff bill daley said as much this morning. and here's why. joe biden has been an asset to this president into campaigns and throughout five years of this administration. whether it was handling the implementation of the recovery, handling the very sensitive and important portfolio of iraq in the first term or his key role in working with congress on some important negotiations, joe biden has been an excellent partner in the president's view. and then, as a candidate, i think, if you look at the role he played in 2012 when you look debate,ob he did in his i think there is little doubt that he was an enormous asset to the entire cause and enterprise. that is how the pre
rollout, we are learning that six people were able to sign up on day one. yesterday, jay carney said this is a dog bite man's story as we talk about health care but yet this is a big deal and we're learning more. is it accurate or wise i should say for the white house to downplay this as dog bite's man? >> i think they have to accept the fact this was a big screw up. i think new york mayor laguardia said when i make a mistake, it's a butte. this is something the president cares about more than anything in his legacy, the major contribution he has made to the social safety net. it will ultimately succeed, but it only succeed if he keeps his credibility. i think it's important as we go through this rocky period he is seen the man you go to. he always has to tell the whole truth. bobby kennedy used to say hang a lantern on your problem and let people know what your problem is so they will begin to trust you more. real quickly a yes or no. do you think the president needs to come out and talk more about this? >> no. i think he needs to be candid about the fact the issue is still this one
press sect jay carney called the figures cherry picked leaks by republicans and not official numbers. the administration says the website's glitches are making it tough to get actual totals and they are lowering expectations for the initial enrollment report. expected in a few weeks. we told new advance that there would be low enrollment figures initially. >> with the white house in damage control mode, some are wondering if mr. obama is facing a second term curse like ronald reagan who was plagued by the iran-contra affair or bill clinton who was embroiled in the monika lewinsky scandal. >> there is something to be said about the historical antecedents here. it's hard to be president and more difficult to be president in this day and age where controlling your message on any given day is virtually impossible. >> now, dave kemp, charp of the house ways and means committee, has written a letter to cms, one of the agencies in charge of the website asking for as much information as possible about those enrollment figures. the obama administration has called in some of the biggest names
consideration? >> yes. >> david, white house spokesman jay carney asked yesterday if president obama knew about any potential v.p. swaps, listen to this -- >> you're saying he was aware of this or was not -- >> i think if you ask the people who were more directly running the campaign that question, they might have an answer. i'm not aware that he was aware of it. >> in those conversations about kicking biden off the ticket here, is it possible the president may not have been aware of those discussions happening around him? >> i think chris is right in what she said. i covered the campaign. there were moments where the president seemed to have losst some of the momentum he had four years ago. hillary clinton was riding high in the polls as secretary of state. there was public talk among pundits and so on. i'm sure the campaign were thinking about every potential option. whether it reached the level of president obama or was serious, it looks unlikely. david plouffe is adamant about that. i think this is a lot of talk. biden's role in this white house has been periodically questioned about how se
